Grow 365

A journey through His story

One year. One goal. Join us as we partake in a breath-taking journey through His story with hundreds of others in our faith-family, a chronological journey through God’s Word. What if there was a way to read the Bible that naturally uncovered it’s storyline allowing you to see it as one story? Reading the Bible chronologically helps to uncover God’s attributes, character, and ways. Understanding the overarching story of the Bible helps us to see God as He has revealed Himself in His Word enabling us, His children, to live with purpose, passion, and hope as we live out our story within His story for His glory!

“The Bible tells the story of God’s redemptive work to restore fallen mankind into a relationship with Him and then He invites us to join Him in that redemptive work.”

Michael Priest

Senior Pastor

Questions to ask as you read:

What does it say?

Read the text as though you are a detective, looking for evidence. Nothing in God’s Word is insignificant!

What does it mean?

Context is king! Don’t ask, “What does this mean to me?”, but rather, “What does this mean?” Period!

What does it teach?

What is the “timeless truth” that anyone anywhere can base their life upon?

What do I do?

A truth not practiced is a truth never really learned or believed. What will you do with what God has shown you?

Remember:

  • Trust God to speak to you. Read expectantly!
  • Don’t try too hard. Avoid the tendency to look beyond what is in the text.
  • Think! Reading the Bible is not like watching TV; think! Meditate on what you read!
  • Put into practice what you learn and hear from God through His Word.
